Calendar

Any visit to the museum is crowned by a visit to Café Alvar, where delicious lunches and mouth-watering pastries are made on the premises. A lovely view of the Rose Garden and the leafy garden that separates the Alvar Aalto Museum and the Museum of Central Finland opens up from the large café windows.

In the summertime visitors can also enjoy their coffee on the terrace next to the pool in the stream. Step into our timelessly beautiful and peaceful cafe for a light lunch or a delicious cup of coffee, and maybe even a slice of cake!
